The Victoria and Alfred Waterfront (V & A Waterfront) is one of Cape Town's top tourist destinations. Cape Town knows how to do things properly and this waterfront complex is no exception.

If you are looking for a place to eat then you have plenty of restaurants to choose from. These cater for all tastes and bdugets.

Boat trips are one of the major drawcards and again you are spoilt for choice. Pirate boats, jet boats, schooners and far more offer a variety of cruises.

When you are not eating or on a boat trip then there are plenty of shopping opportunities.
